Immerse your students in a subject with Bing

  • Comments 0

It’s amazing what you can find on a Bing map. Discover interactive, 3-D Photosynth® technology and encourage students toexplore historic or curious places as if they’re standing right there.

1) Take a virtual field trip

Other online maps show you the roof of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. With a Photosynth found on Bing maps, you can explore the galleries inside.

2) Go on safari

Visit Africa on Bing Maps. Head to Tanzania and set your students loose on the Serengeti plains with wild 3-D synths of giraffes, zebras, and much more.

3) Take a trip in a time machine

Bring ancient Greece and the Parthenon to your classroom. Get close enough to see the lichen on the rocks of Stonehenge. Share an archaeological dig in Egypt. Or see the battlefield at Gettysburg as it looks today.

4) Study architecture

Photosynth lets you compare the colourful domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow to the majestic Taj Majal in India to Toronto’s modern SkyDome.

5) Make any subject more engaging

Imagine lots of crisp digital photos stitched seamlessly together to create eye-popping experiences you control. The Photosynth world offers ways to engage your students no matter the subject — biology, history, geography, or art. It’s a world of possibilities found on Bing Maps.
